During the war in Afghanistan a number of Soviet BMP-1s fell into the hands of the Mujahideen who used them against their former owners. Some were converted by the Afghans into self-propelled anti-aircraft guns (SPAAG)s/fire support vehicles armed with ZU-23-2 twin autocannon. They were used for fire support in the mountains. Many BMP-1s were left behind by the withdrawing Soviet forces. These vehicles and some derelicts were restored to working condition and are now used by the Afghan National Army. The Afghan army also operates the previously mentioned SPAAGs.

The first round hit the front armor of the turret but failed to penetrate it. The second hit beneath the TOW ATGM launcher, penetrating the armor, disabling the vehicle, killing the gunner and wounding the loader and commander.

The BMP-1 is a Soviet Infantry Fighting Vehicle. This edit will also create new pages on Giant Bomb for: Beware, you are proposing to add brand new pages to the wiki along with your edits Despite the lack of armour, however, the BMP-1 will, on occasion, survive hits unexpectedly - the internals of the vehicle are largely non-critical and many rounds will over-penetrate.

The BMD-1 is a Soviet airborne amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicle, which was introduced in 1969 and first seen by the West in 1970.BMD stands for Boyevaya Mashina Desanta (Боевая Машина Десанта, which literally translates to Combat Vehicle of the Airborne). It can be dropped by parachute and although it resembles the BMP-1 it is in fact much smaller
Other articles where BMP-1 is discussed: armoured vehicle: Infantry fighting vehicles: German Marder and the Soviet BMP-1, which first appeared in the late 1960s, represented the most significant advances in IFVs since World War II. Both vehicles enabled mounted infantry effectively to engage even armoured opponents—a capability lacking in previous designs In spite of its characteristic drawbacks, (weak armour, low efficiency of the 73 mm gun), the Chinese developed the Type 86 in the mid-1990s. A modernized variant, designated the Type 86A (WZ 501B), was fitted with a 400 hp engine, a modern radio and 2nd generation infrared vision devices. Type 86A IFVs will remain in service with the PLA for the foreseeable future. The PLA maintains around 1,000 of those IFVs, (the earlier WZ 501s were upgraded to WZ 501B level), which are mostly used by armoured units stationed in northern mainland China. The modernization of WZ 501 IFVs developed by the Chinese NORINCO concern are known, including the WZ 501M with a new one-man turret armed with the Russian 2A72 30 mm autocannon and the "Malyutka-2" ATGM. The PLA Marine Corps in southern Guangdong province, is equipped with the special variant designated the Type 86B developed by NORINCO which has been adapted for crossing sea water obstacles. The low profile of the vehicle made it hard or even impossible to support the dismounted advancing infantry. Based on this, new tactics for BMP-1 usage were created after the war and used by the Soviets during subsequent military maneuvers. They included 50 meter long intervals between the advancing infantry squads to allow IFVs to support the infantry with their firepower. On the positive side, the vehicle was praised for being fast and agile. Its low ground pressure enabled it to navigate the northern Kantara salt marshes where Israeli and Egyptian tanks would have bogged down. These advantages amazed the Israeli military. Its ability to swim proved useful when it was used by the Egyptians in the first wave of Suez Canal crossings. Egyptian crewmen of the 4th armored division who used BMP-1s for the fire support of the 2nd and 18th infantry divisions at Kantara valued the BMP-1 for its high speed and maneuverability but noted its bad ventilation, (Egyptian crewmembers and infantry suffered a lot from the heat and to compensate for this drawback, kept some of the vehicle's hatches open, even in combat zones). The Egyptians also found the troop compartment too cramped for eight fully equipped soldiers to quickly mount/dismount the vehicle. Consequently, Egyptian BMP-1s usually only took six. BMP-1 accelerates the connective tissue growth factor production dependently on cellular internalization in human dental pulp cells, indicating a novel property of BMP-1 which potentially enhances bone-like reparative dentin formation In the 1950’s, Soviet armored personnel carrier (APC) tactics consisted of lightly armored vehicles that would transport soldiers to combat zones, and then head back behind the lines to safety. During this time, the West German Bundeswehr was using the Schützenpanzer Lang and infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) tactics, where the vehicles would work with the infantry and tanks in order to support them, especially against lightly armored targets. The BMP was a Soviet IFV design created in the late 1950’s. Some of the requirements were the ability for all of the infantry carried to be able to fire from within the vehicle, which was unseen before in IFV designs. It was intended to support the infantry and combat enemy light vehicles. The design placed emphasis on speed and maneuverability, potent armament, and sufficient armament to protect against 23 mm autocannons over the frontal arc. There was a debate over how the vehicle should be wheeled or tracked, and a number of options were explored including hybrid designs with both. The design that was chosen was a tracked vehicle with the engine in the front and the crew compartment in the rear; it was designated the Object 764. A prototype was created in 1964, and the final design was chosen in 1965 - an improved model called the Object 765. In service the production model was called the BMP-1.
Poland also bought 22 BWR-1D (BRM-1K) reconnaissance vehicles in 1987 from the USSR and 16 BWR-1S, (a modernized BPzV), reconnaissance vehicles from the Czech Republic in the early 1990s. BWR-1S reconnaissance vehicles are used by the 18th Reconnaissance Battalion of the 16th Mechanized Division in Elbląg and the 2nd Reconnaissance Regiment from Hrubieszów. Poland also operates MP-31 command vehicles which served as a basis for the ZWDSz 2 command vehicle (see the 'Poland' section, of the BMP-1 variants article for details). There are 1,306 BWP-1s, 33 BWP-1Ds, 5 MP-31s and 6 ZWDSz-2 command vehicles in service as of the first half of 2008. The number of BWR-1Ss and BWR-Ds has not changed. WPT/DTP "Mors" armored recovery vehicles (ARVs), based on the Opal tracked, amphibious multi-purpose APC are used to recover damaged BWP-1s as well as other tracked vehicles weighing less than 14 tonnes. WZT-2 (ARV)s are also used for this task. The BMP-1 is the cornerstone of any Battery Maintenance Management Program when you experience 50 or more spent batteries a month.

Things To Know About BMP-1 Fighting Vehicle . BMP-1 is designed by the Pavel Isakov. It is a type of infantry fighting vehicle, and the Soviet Union is its origin. During the years 1961 to 1965, the fighting vehicle was designed. It was manufactured by different companies. Following are the manufacturers - ExcaliburArmy; VOP 026; Kurgan. The MT-LB (Russian: Многоцелевой Тягач Легкий Бронированный, Mnogotselevoy Tyagach Legky Bronirovanny / Multi-Purpose Towing Vehicle Light Armoured) is a Soviet multi-purpose fully amphibious auxiliary armored tracked vehicle, which was first introduced in the 1950s.It is also produced in Poland, where (starting mid-1990s) its YaMZ engine was replaced by a. The BMP-1P was the result of the Soviet Union's efforts to modernize the BMP-1, which has been mass-produced since 1966. The improvements included an upgraded ATGM launcher. The BMP-1P replaced its predecessor in 1979, and many BMP-1's were upgraded to the new standard, which spawned off other variants Missiles are launched with an initial velocity of 30 m/s and only require 2.5 seconds to reach a top in-flight speed of 200 m/s. It takes 30 seconds before another missile can be launched. The warheads have a blast radius of 2.5 metres.
BMP-1s were used by opposing forces during almost all military conflicts on the territory of former USSR. Convert your PDF files to BMP image. PDF (Portable Document Format) is a formatting language developed by Adobe, an extensible page-description protocol that implements the native file format based on PostScript language, uses standard compression algorithm, documents can contain text, graphics, multimedia, custom data types and more The Indian Army had more than 600 BMP-1 and BMP-2s in 1994. The BMP-1s were eventually withdrawn from service and replaced by BMP-2s.
Sweden purchased 338 Soviet manufactured ex-East German BMP-1s in mid-1994 and an additional 12 in 1996. They gave the vehicle the designation 'Pbv 501' (Pansarbandvagn 501). With Czech specialists, all Pbv 501 IFVs were upgraded to Swedish Army standards (Pbv 501A) from 1996. A few were upgraded further to serve as command vehicles. There were 340 vehicles in service in 2006 when they were withdrawn from the I 2, I 12, and I 16 infantry regiments, and the P 4 armored regiment. 250 vehicles were in mint condition having driven less than 120 km. Sweden offered its BMP-1s, plus spare parts and training equipment for sale. The original plan had been to sell them to a single sovereign customer. They might also be sold in batches of fifty to separate states; customers to express their interest before 16 June 2008 and submit their bids before 15 August 2008. Transactions to be approved by the Swedish and German authorities (Sweden held the German end user certificate). The other option considered was scrapping the vehicles in Sweden, according to the regulations. It was announced in December 2008 that the Czech Republic had purchased all Swedish BMP-1s (PBV 501) and spares. FAPLA deployed BMP-1s in small numbers during an ill-fated 1987 offensive against the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) and its South African allies, which initiated the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale. South African troops subsequently captured 2 FAPLA BMP-1s in intact condition and destroyed a third. Cuba later deployed a number of its own BMP-1s to southern Angola during a 1988 offensive against South African positions near the border. In 1989, FAPLA renewed its offensive against UNITA during Operation Final Assault, deploying BMP-mounted mechanized infantry for the first time in large numbers. The offensive was abandoned after the units involved suffered heavy casualties; UNITA claimed to have destroyed or captured 200 FAPLA BMP-1s. In 1993, FAPLA ordered almost 300 new BMP-1s from Belarus, Bulgaria, and Russia to replace those lost in the civil war. By 1999, UNITA had captured enough BMP-1s and BMP-2s to integrate them into a single mechanized unit of battalion strength. However, UNITA lacked the resources to keep the vehicles well maintained, and suffered from an erratic supply of diesel fuel which made prolonged mechanized operations unsustainable. UNITA's mechanized capability was destroyed after several pitched battles with the superior FAPLA forces in late 1999.
After the war the newly formed New Iraqi Army operates BMP-1s. They are used by the 1st Mechanized Brigade which is based in Taji. It also assumed part of the security mission of the Ministry of Defense by stationing BMP-1s in the MOD grounds. The New Iraqi Army operates a total of 434 BMP-1s including 100 (36 in 2005 and 64 in 2006) BMP-1A1 'Ost' from Greece. For example, while the baseline variant for both vehicles transport the same number of passengers, the BMP-1 retains more armour and fares slightly better against anti-vehicle weapons. It can survive a direct hit from the M72 LAW (though it will be severely damaged afterwards) whereas the M113 won't be able to resist even a single rocket from an RPG-75NH. On the third day of fighting on land (26 February 1991,) the American VII corps engaged the Iraqi 2nd and 3rd Republican Guard divisions, the 12th Mechanized Division and the 12tharmored division in northwest Kuwait at around 1620hrs. It resulted in the destruction of 13 Iraqi T-72 MBTs and 13 Iraqi BMPs. On the same day and in the same area at around 1830hrs a group of M1 Abrams MBTs destroyed nine T-72 s and four BMPs.
Iraqi BMP-1s and BMP-2s faced the US-led forces in 1990, which included 2,200 M2 Bradleys and M3 AFVs. During the battle of Medina Ridge, an M2A2 Bradley commanded by Sergeant Charles Peters, took part in a 60-second firefight with Iraqi Republican Guard AFVs during which the US vehicle destroyed two BMPs, firing about nine armor-piercing rounds from the Bradley's 25 mm autocannon (three of which destroyed the first BMP). A T-72M MBT was also destroyed by a TOW ATGM. The BMP-1 is a Soviet amphibious tracked Infantry fighting vehicle used by many different nations around the world. This is a list of nations that operate it. BMP-1 je bojové vozidlo pechoty so sériovým označením 1. BMP tvorí základ motostreleckých jednotiek mnohých štátov východnej a strednej Európy. Sú rozlišované základné verzie BMP, a to BMP-1 a BMP-2, pričom v Rusku sa vyrába málo známe, avšak podstatne modernejšie BMP-3 a v súčasnosti aj modernejšie ťažké bojové vozidlo pechoty na platforme Armata T-15
Once the BMP-1P upgrade is researched, the rail-mounted 9M14 ATGM is replaced with a spindle-mounted 9M113 ATGM. This ATGM is significantly more powerful and easier to use due to its semi-automatic guiding system. Improved penetration values and significantly increased explosive mass will result in far more reliable destructive power. Keep in mind that the ATGM can only be fired when stopped or at extremely low speeds. Description The BMP-1 is the driving force behind the development of tactics and equipment in the post-Great Patriotic War period was the theory of Deep Battle A new up-armored variant of the BMP-1, designated the BMP-1D, (it was sometimes known as the "Afghan" variant), was urgently pressed into service in 1982. Many field modifications were carried out by various units. These included welding an additional AGS-17 "Plamya" automatic grenade launcher, without its mounting, on the bracket of the anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launcher on the turret roof or a 2B9 "Vasilek" 82 mm automatic gun-mortar on the roof of the troop compartment to increase the vehicle's firepower when guarding vital routes. Crew members noted that the 73 mm OG-9 HE-Fragmentation round for the main gun, which was supposed to increase the vehicle's firepower against unarmored vehicles and infantry, had a large dispersion, insufficient point-blank range and an occasional inability to penetrate cob walls due to its low muzzle velocity. The PG-9 HEAT round was able to penetrate Afghan pise buildings, but because of the poor fragmentation effect of an anti-tank projectile a small hole was often the only result. Based on the experience of Afghanistan, a BMP-1PG (Ob'yekt 765Sp8) was fitted with an additional AGS-17 grenade launcher on the left hand side of the turret roof. It was developed by the Kurgan Engineering Works. A few BMP-1s were used in Afghanistan as support for airborne forces and were equipped with RPG-16 airborne shoulder-launched anti-tank rocket-propelled grenades, (RPG)s, taken from the BMD-1 IFV. The BMP-1 is the most widely produced mechanized infantry fighting vehicle in the world. Even though it was supplemented by the more capable BMP-2, the BMP-1 remained the most numerous Soviet infantry fighting vehicle during the entire Cold War Until the late 1980s, FAPLA lacked a significant mechanized infantry capability and was dependent largely on wheeled APCs such as the BTR-60PB and obsolete BTR-152. The BMP-1 was more commonly utilised as a command vehicle in the FAPLA armored brigades. Some BMP-1s were allocated to the Soviet military mission in Angola for liaison and general transport. Others participated in convoy escort missions, often accompanied by motorized infantry in BTR-60s. FAPLA logistics convoys were typically led by a bulldozer or tank modified with mine clearance equipment, followed closely by at least one BTR and a BMP-1. The purpose of the BMP in the convoy was to engage hostile armour with its cannon and anti-tank guided missiles. While the BTR-mounted infantry squad was capable of repelling attacks by lightly armed insurgents, towards the end of the 1980s more convoys were ambushed by South African expeditionary troops in their own armoured fighting vehicles. The BMP was likely adopted in direct response to the increasing threat posed to the convoys by South African armour.
I really like to play the BMP-1, especially the 1P variant. Its fun, and unlike some claims, pretty effective too. But. Its very unrealistic, and would need to be significantly re-worked for historical accuracy.

The main differences between the Pbv 502 and the BMP-1 are as follows: Removal of the launcher rail for the Koloma KBM 9K11 Malyutka (NATO AT-3 'Sagger') over the 2A28 73 mm gun and its associated control box inside the turret Weapon monitor circuits include devices inhibiting the use of weapons when the hatches are ope During Russo-Georgian war BMP-1 was used by both sides, but mostly by Russian forces, BMP-1 saw rather limited usage by Georgian side in active fighting, During conflict Russian army lost 9 BMP-1s and 2 BMP-1Ps, Georgian army lost 2 BMP-1s while 15 upgraded BMP-1U were captured intact by Russian forces, 3 BMP-1s of Russian peacekeeping force with side numbers 610,614 and 625 were destroyed by Georgian T-72 tanks in opening hours of conflict, Another 3 BMP-1s fell victim to Georgian T-72SIM1 tanks near village of Tbeti near Tskhinval, While others were destroyed or disabled by Georgian RPG and artillery fire, from 2 lost Georgian BMPs one was destroyed when it suffered from ammo cook-off near Gori-Tbilisi Highway, While another one was destroyed by Russian forces when they captured it near Gori. .
The BMP-1 comes with a rail-mounted manually-guided ATGM as stock, initially aimed manually and with somewhat mediocre penetration and explosive mass values.

BMP-1 description. You can check the specs, operators, images and videos Indian BMP-1s participated in a difficult operation against Tamil rebels in Sri Lanka in October 1987 (Operation Pawan), when transport planes flew some 2,200 sorties, delivering T-72 MBTs, BMP-1s and other equipment for Indian units which were not equipped with heavy weapons initially. This had been the plan in order to minimize civilian losses and damage done in Jaffna. In some areas anti-personnel mines were countered by driving BMP-1s and T-72 MBTs over them. AFVs were used as support during attacks on enemy positions. Elsewhere, a BMP-1 of the 72nd infantry brigade with colonel D.S. Saraon and nine soldiers aboard hit a mine which resulted in their deaths.
The BMP-1 has very little to speak of in the armour department. Minimal frontal and nearly non-existent side armour results in the vehicle being vulnerable to almost any incoming fire. As such, the vehicle's survivability stems entirely from its mobility and reasonably small profile. Where possible, utilise hills or other cover, only exposing as much of the vehicle as is necessary to engage an unaware target. Be aware when attempting flanking maneuvers and early pushes that there are vehicles with better mobility characteristics, and in many cases you'll encounter a vehicle before reaching a desirable position.
BMP 1: Part 7 - Markings By miniarmour on November 19, 2013 • ( 2 Comments ) The story of markings on this model is rather longer oneand informative too, at least for me The East German National People's Army operated one of the greatest arsenals of Soviet-built BMP-1s among the armies of the Warsaw Pact. On 3 October 1990, when German reunification took place, 1,112 functional BMP-1s became the property of the Federal Republic of Germany's Bundeswehr. The original plan was to retain them, until the German-built Marder 2 or the modernized Marder 1 became available in adequate numbers. They were brought up to NATO safety standards, modernized (fitted with a new radio, rear-view mirrors and reflectors) and received the designation BMP-1A1 Ost (See the 'Germany' section in the BMP-1 variants article for details). The majority of vehicles brought up to BMP-1A1 Ost standard were 'P' versions. 501 BMP-1A1s were sold to Greece between 1993 and 1994. 350 were sold to Sweden where they received the designation Pbv 501. 110 non-modernized BMP-1/BMP-1P were sold for a very low price to Finland in 1990. Polish military specialists consider the BWP-1 to be obsolete. Before the political changes of 1989, the Polish Army planned to replace its BWP-1s with BWP-2s but financial problems resulted in just 62 vehicles being purchased. Obtaining sufficient numbers became impossible, Poland was forced to abandon the plan. The vehicles that had been bought were sold in 1995 to Angola. The Polish Army is planning to upgrade a number of its BWP-1s to BWP-1M "Puma" standard, which is a modernization developed in 1999 by the Wojskowe Zakłady Motoryzacyjne Nr. 5 (WZM Nr. 5) (Military Motorization Plant No. 5) in Poznań. A new unmanned turret was chosen. An experimental company equipped with BWP-1M "Puma" IFVs is to be created in 2011. Four mechanized battalions are to be reequipped from 2012. The BMP-1 carries a missile which adds additional firepower and can be used to engage targets at long range and is also effective against helicopters to a degree. Compared to the RakjPz the BMP-1 has the advantage off having a turret + a cannon, making it easier to quickly engange targets at long and short ranges The BMP-1 was the first mass-produced infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) of USSR. Based on lessons learned from early experiences in the Soviet War in Afghanistan, a version with improved fighting qualities was developed, called the BMP-2. It was accepted into service in August 1980
. Others include an experimental fitting of a French Dragar turret and a non-amphibious BWP-40, the Swedish CV 9040 turret mounted on a BWP-1 hull, a joint development of Huta Stalowa Wola and Bofors and the BWP-95 (see the Poland section of the BMP-1 variants article for details). The aim of such modernization is to increase the firepower of the BWP-1 in accordance with the modern standards of the Polish Army and NATO. The preservation of all available army infrastructure (AFV repair bases, training schools) is also important. The main problem with modernized variants of the BWP-1 is a significant increase in the weight of the vehicle which can cause an overload of the engine, the transmission and the suspension. The United States acquired its first BMP-1 prior to 1 October 1986. US forces also captured a number of BMP-1s from Iraq during the First Persian Gulf War and 2003 invasion of Iraq. The vehicles were tested on proving grounds and three were then given to museums, including one in the US National Infantry Museum, Fort Benning. It was captured by the 24th Mechanized Infantry Division in the Euphrates valley during the First Persian Gulf War.

The People's Republic of China bought a single BMP-1 (Ob'yekt 765Sp3) IFV from Egypt in 1975. Soviet-Chinese diplomatic relations were at the time, confrontational, and the Chinese could not ask for a Soviet BMP-1. By reverse-engineering, the Chinese developed an almost full copy of a Soviet BMP-1 in 1986. The Chinese model WZ 501 was 200 kg lighter and with a copied 310–320 hp NORINCO 6V150 diesel engine, (a copy of the original UTD-20), it had the same maximum road speed as the BMP-1. The WZ 501 was originally intended for the export market, but the People's Liberation Army (PLA), which only used APCs, was desperate for a dedicated IFV. The PLA adopted a number of WZ 501s in 1992, giving the WZ 501 the designation 'Type 86', even though the vehicle, like the original BMP-1, was already obsolete.
The BVP-1 is a licence-produced, Czech-made variant of the Soviet BMP-1 Infantry Fighting Vehicle.. Aside from the general layout which remains the same as the original vehicle, the BVP-1 addresses a number of drawbacks from the original BMP-1; namely improved ergonomics for both the crew and passengers The absolute majority of the vehicles were mounted on the BMP2 chassis and just a few on the BMP1. Equipped with the original equipment, the VPV was able to tow the following vehicles: BMP-1, BMP-2, OT-64, BRDM-2, OT-62. A machine gun operated from the outside from the commander's lid, was placed on the upper part for protection The BMP-1 was primarily developed to replace the limited BTR-50 series vehicles (in particular the BTR-50P model) to which the much improved 8x8 wheeled BTR-60 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) was also developed in conjunction and produced on an equally large scale alongside the more technologically-laden BMP-1 family. Both vehicles went on to. India produced a licensed copy of the Soviet BMP-1. The Indian version differs from the basic model, having a slightly altered turret design. A convoy of three T-55(A)MVs and a single BMP-1 underway during an exercise in 2010. Although the Syrian Arab Army's immense fleet of tanks and BMPs were once destined to jointly operate on the plains of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, many are now individually attached to the various units and militias wrestling for control over Syria
. Despite this, the PG-9 HEAT round proves valuable in a pinch, with well-placed shots able to disable critical components on most vehicles the BMP will face. Keep in mind that the BMP-1 does not feature any sort of stabilisation at all, and due to its light weight the gun is near impossible to get on target at speed. The BMP-1 is a Soviet amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicle.BMP stands for Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty 1 (Russian: Боевая Машина Пехоты 1; БМП-1), meaning infantry fighting vehicle. The BMP-1 was the first mass-produced infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) of the Soviet Union. It was called the M-1967, BMP and BMP-76PB by NATO before its correct designation was known BMP-2 Fighting Vehicle The BMP-2 [BMP = Boyevaya Mashina Pyekhota - Infantry Fighting Vehicle] infantry combat vehicle, fielded in the early 1980's [initially designated BMP 1981], is an improved version of the BMP-1 incorporating major armament changes. The new two-man turret mounts a 30-mm automatic gun with a long thin tube and double-baffle muzzle brake that can be used against aircraft.
The BMP-1 carries 8 dismounts, equipped with RPG-7L anti-armor weapons, a PKM, and 5.45mm rifles. The BMP-1 is dangerous to incautious attackers, or if it can catch units unaware at close range from the flanks, but it is vulnerable to any tank, IFV, infantry anti-tank weapon, or artillery Prior to the first Gulf War, Iraq bought around 1,000 BMP-1s and 800 BMP-2s. The first vehicles were bought by Iraq from the USSR in the 1970s. Iraq also developed two upgrades for the BMP-1 and one armored ambulance conversion. The first upgrade, designated the Saddam I, was shown during the 1989 Baghdad exhibition. It added appliqué armour to the sides of the hull and looked quite similar to the Soviet BMP-1D. The Saddam I never entered production because the additional armor overloaded the chassis and a suitable replacement engine to handle this extra weight was not available. The second upgrade, designated the Saddam II, added rubber side-skirts, additional armor on the upper hull sides and an ATU box. Unlike the first upgrade, it did enter production and was mainly used by the Iraqi Republican Guard. In 1985 Iraq also developed an armored ambulance conversion (named in some sources as the BMP-1SM) which had the turret removed and the rear part of the vehicle extended to allow the easier transportation of stretchers and walking wounded. The vehicle did not enter service in large numbers.
The Russian BMP-2 Infantry Fighting Vehicle Though the Germans had discovered the use and importance, shortly followed by America & the UK, of the APC in the Second World War, it was the Russians who evolved the APC into the Infantry Fighting Vehicle with the introduction of their BMP-1 in 1967 The mTLD, but Not BMP-1, Forms a Ca 2+-Dependent Dimer.. The size and oligomeric status of BMP-1 and mTLD were first analyzed by multiangle laser light scattering (MALLS) (SDS/PAGE of purified proteins is shown in Fig. S1A).In the presence of 1 mM CaCl 2, mTLD had a molecular mass of 196,400 Da, approximately twice that predicted from amino acid sequence (Fig. 1 B and Table 1)
BWP-1s are fitted with passive night vision devices and modern communication equipment while undergoing maintenance. The two main candidates for replacing the BWP-1 are: the Swedish CV 90 and the Polish BWP-2000. The BWP-2000 was developed using the chassis of the SUM Kalina minelayer and based on experiences with the BWP-1 in the 1990s by the OBRUM (Ośrodek Badawczo-Rozwojowy Urządzeń Mechnicznych – Institute of Research and Development of Mechanical Devices), from Gliwice, with help from Polish experts on IFVs. BMP-1/PCP: Products. Bone morphogenetic protein 1 (BMP-1), also known as procollagen C-proteinase (PCP), is a zinc protease of the astacin family. BMP-1/PCP plays a key role in formation of extracellular matrix (ECM) by converting precursor proteins into their mature and functional forms The BMP-1 Armored Personnel Carrier was developed by the Soviet Union in the early 1960s, and the BMP-1 Model 1970 is the primary production variant The BMP-1 was exported to many countries and is still in service with about 48 armies. Many countries that can not afford to buy modern IFVs operate the BMP-1 due to its still acceptable maneuverability, reliability, low maintenance costs and because of it being easy to operate and modernize. It was in service with all the members of the Warsaw Pact. Numbers varied greatly, some East German divisions had the BMP-1 in all three motor rifle regiments while the Romanians and Bulgarians had no BMP-series vehicles. Crew Capacity The baseline IFV variant retains enough seats for a crew of three that consists of the driver, a gunner, and the commander. It can transport up to eight passengers at a time in the rear compartment.
Many BMP-1s and BMP-1Ps fell victim to Mujahideen attacks and anti-tank landmines (see Protection Issues section for more details); a fate shared by many Soviet light AFVs. A number were also captured by the Mujahideen. The Soviet Army lost 1317 APCs and IFVs of all types during 9 years of war in Afghanistan. It should be noted that the BMP-1's AT-3 missiles are only controllable up to a maximum distance of 250 metres (immediately after launch). Beyond this distance, the AT-3 cannot be guided manually by the gunner. The BMP-1 was first shown publicly in 1967 and created quire a stir in the West by its apparent combination of mobility protection and gun/missile firepower. This infantry fighting vehicle was produced in large numbers. In its day the BMP-1 was the vehicle that others were measured by and the type was churned out in thousands in the former. The 81st Guards motor rifle regiment, originally stationed in East Germany, was relocated along with other units of the 90th Guard Red Banner Lvov tank division in 1993. The regiment, armed with 31 MBTs and 96 IFVs, later took part in the First Chechen war. During the assault on Grozny on 31 December 1994, the 1st motor rifle battalion and the 131st Maykop motor rifle brigade successfully captured a central train station while the 2nd motor rifle battalion of the regiment blocked the presidential palace. The commanders of both battalions organized outpost and reconnaissance after columns were trapped in the streets, suffering an estimated 150 casualties from snipers and RPGs. The commander and the executive officer of the regiment were badly wounded in the fighting. The regiment placed its block posts under the control of internal security troops and was put into reserve at Severny airport in February 1994 to perform guard duties at Chervlennaya and Chervlennaya-Uzlovaya railway stations. The regiment was withdrawn from Chechnya in April 1995. Hi, I was previously holding out to buy the T-55AM1 to grind out the long Russian tree but it's not on sale this VE apparently. I've just got to Tier V and have T-54 1947 and BMP-1 unlocked last week. BMP-1. At 7.3, would the BMP-1 still be competent under the 7.7 MM if i were to use it alongside the T-54? 2. T-5
Notifier - BMP-1 Blank Module Plate PID. Filed under . Notifier - BMP-1 Blank Module Plate PI SMC actuator - auto-switch bracket family - auto-switch bracket - switch mount bracket for cp9 There was considerable debate among Soviet tank specialists about the utility of the BMP at the time: it had weak armor and a low-powered armament in comparison with main battle tanks (MBT)s and was far more expensive than wheeled APCs. The probability of nuclear warfare had decreased significantly at the beginning of the 1970s, new tactics for the use of IFVs during conventional warfare had to be developed. Those tactics had to take into consideration the large numbers of anti-tank weapons prevalent on modern battlefields. It was finally decided that a BMP-1 with soldiers inside could be used successfully during breakthrough operations or in the pursuit of retreating enemy forces. Did You Check eBay?

. Although other bone morphogenetic proteins are members of the TGF-beta superfamily, this gene encodes a protein that is not closely related to other known growth factors Bone morphogenetic protein 1 (BMP-1), also known as procollagen C-proteinase (PCP), is a zinc protease of the astacin family (1, 2). BMP-1/PCP plays a key role in formation of extracellular matrix (ECM) by converting precursor proteins into their mature and functional forms The last battle of the conflict in which Iraqi BMPs were used took place on 2 March 1991, when part of the Iraqi "Hammurabi" Republican Guard division tried to break out of the pocket which had been closed by the US 24th armored division. When the Iraqis opened fire on the Bradleys, the Americans called in AH-64 Apache attack helicopters. They destroyed 32 T-72 MBTs, 49 BMPs, 2 ZSU-23-4 SPAAGs and 48 other vehicles. It is unknown how many Iraqi BMPs survived the First Persian Gulf War, but the ones that did were used during the 2003 invasion of Iraq – with similar results.
Here is the BMP modeler's one-stop resource for photos, kits, details, and references The BMP-1's welded steel hull and turret are capable of withstanding 23mm AP rounds across the frontal arc, while the rest of the vehicle maintains all around small arms protection. In combat, the rear doors are filled with sand, increasing resistance to .50 caliber guns
1. Introduction. In purified plasma samples from healthy volunteers using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS), we identified BMP1-3 isoform of the Bmp1 gene .BMP1 (procollagen C proteinase-1; BMP1) and mammalian tolloid (mTLD/BMP1-3) are alternatively spliced products of the Bmp1 gene. BMP1 was originally isolated from bone with other BMPs due to its affinity for heparin. Bard Music Player is an automated music player for playing MIDI songs in FFXIV using the Bard's Performance mode..

In addition, it provides many more useful features such as: playlist, searching, note preview, lyrics, piano input, chat logging, and orchestra mode (multi. Likewise, the BMP-1 packs a 73 mm cannon instead of a simple heavy machine gun, and can alternate between firing anti-personnel/anti-vehicle shells. Finally, although it's obviously not recommended to do so, the BMP-1 can fight back against tanks like the M60A3/M1A1 as a last resort if no other support is available.

The BMP-1 is a shoot-and-scoot type of vehicle as an exposed BMP-1 is a dead BMP-1 - avoid being a target at all costs. Use your mobility to find reasonable sniping spots (for your ATGM) and only use your cannon if an enemy is close and unaware of your presence. Remember that if anything sees you, it can destroy you - even a .50 cal will make quick work of the BMP-1 from the sides or back. A co-operation project between the Chinese NORINCO and the US FMC companies in the 1980s gave birth to a prototype export variant designated the NFV-1. The prototype of the NFV-1 IFV was shown publicly in November 1986. The vehicle has the "Sharpshooter" one-man turret armed with the stabilized 25 mm M242 Bushmaster autocannon and 7.62 mm M240 coaxial general-purpose machine gun fitted onto a Type 86 hull. Further development ceased when the US government prohibited any further collaboration with the Chinese as a response to the Tiananmen Square crackdown. At the end of the 1980s, the Chinese, with the help of the US FMC company, designed the Type 86-I (WZ 501A) IFV with a new overhead mount turret (the same as mounted on WZ 551 wheeled IFVs), armed with a licensed Chinese copy of a 25 mm M242 Bushmaster autocannon and a 7.62 mm Type 86 coaxial machine gun (a Chinese copy of the 7.62 mm PKT tank machine gun). It was reported that 350 WZ 501A IFVs were produced for the PLA.
BMP-1 1 was isolated in the latter half of the 1980s from osteogenic fragments of bone and was shown to induce cartilage formation in vivo (1, 2).Unlike other BMPs, BMP-1 is a metalloproteinase with a proteinase domain that is homologous to the crayfish enzyme astacin () and a C-terminal domain comprising three CUB domains and one EGF-like domain BMP-1 (Bojevaja Mašina Pechoty): A Soviet amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicle, put into serial production in 1965 and from 1967 built under licence in Czechoslovakia.This machine had a maximum speed of 65km/h, superb mobility (up to 7km/h in the water), excellent climbing ability and lethal weaponary. 18,000 of these were produced in Czechoslovakia, more than 20,000 in Soviet Union
The BMP-1 OP is dedicated artillery spotter available to all PACT forces and can only be purchased as an attachment to an artillery battery.

Nevertheless, the Yom Kippur War did not confirm that the tactics of the IFVs were viable.
Two BMP-1's were used in the film Behind Enemy Lines starring Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman. The BMP-1 comes equipped with a coaxial 7.62 mm PKT machine gun. This is only useful for clearing small obstacles or exposed crew in open-top vehicles. Service history Soviet Union. The BMP-1 entered service with the Soviet Army in 1966. The first unit to be equipped was the 1st Motor Rifle (renamed as Armoured) Battalion of the 339th Guards Red Banner Belostok Motor Rifle Regiment of the 120th Guards Rogachev Motor Rifle Division (Belorussian Military District), which tested thirty Ob'yekt 765 IFVs and three experimental Ob'yekt 765s Sustainment>military-land-vehicles>BMP-1 BMP-1 The BMP-3 is a Russian infantry fighting vehicle.

With the reduction of the former Soviet Army, many of the older vehicles, including BMP-1s, are surplus to requirements. A number of BMP-1s are being converted into civilian tracked vehicles, (to be used for emergency transport, forest fire fighting and logging), for the far northern regions of the country. Some written-off and demilitarized BMP-1s are being given to different military history museums like the "Battle of Stalingrad" museum-panorama in Volgograd or converted into town monuments, a number of obsolete vehicles have been scrapped. Repaired and modernized BMP-1s and 2s are the mainstay of the Russian Army and the internal security troops of the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Russian Federation. It is planned to replace them with BMP-3s and BMP-3Ms. During the Nagorno-Karabakh War, Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians captured 49 BMP-1s which belonged to the Russian 366th motorized rifle regiment. It was being withdrawn from Stepanakert at the time (March 1992). Between 1992 and 1994 Azerbaijan lost 38 BMP-1s and Armenia lost from 51 to 53 IFVs in battles. For that conflict, Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians made an interesting field modification. Six 9M14M "Malyutka" ATGMs were fitted on an elevatable mount from the 9P122 tank destroyer on the top of the turret at the rear. US Army received several BMP-1s for evaluation purposes. First examples were 4 Israeli captured BMP-1s. In 1987 US Army received 36 ex-Libyan intact BMP-1s from Chad government for technical evaluation. A new batch of 19 BMP-1s from Germany was received in 1991 and 3 additional ones in 1993. All captured and received vehicles were evaluated and some later used in the OPFOR role. A few later found their way to museums. Other damaged BMP-1s are believed to have been received from Morocco and Chad. Israeli tank brigades suffered very high losses during the Syrian offensive. The Israelis noted that the "Malyutka" ATGMs, (including those launched from BMP-1s), were deadly against their tanks (the Sho't, the M48A3 Patton and the M60A1). The Israelis were able to destroy or capture 40–60 Egyptian BMP-1s and 50–60 Syrian BMP-1s out of a total of more than 200 destroyed or captured Arab APCs and IFVs. Around half of the Syrian IFVs that were abandoned by their crews suffered minor mechanical breakdowns. The inability of inexperienced crews (who received the BMP-1 just before the beginning of the war), to carry out maintenance on the new vehicle, was also a factor. During the Yom Kippur War the armor of the BMP-1 proved vulnerable to 106 mm light recoilless guns. In the fighting at Vadi Mabuk, south channel sector, on 13 October, Israeli soldiers found the rear armor of the BMP's turret vulnerable to the armor-piercing bullets of the .50 caliber heavy machine gun. One of the first BMP-1s to be captured was transported to Ben-Gurion airport for detailed investigation by Israeli and American specialists.
